Responsibility and tragedy seem like two ideas that do not fit together. The play, Romeo and Juliet breaks that stereotypical thinking. Two star-crossed lovers who mistakenly and tragically take their own lives, and someone is responsible for their ends. Friar Lawrence is most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he is the one who marries them “in secret,” and he also poorly executed their plan to escape to Mantua, where Romeo had been exiled to. Friar Lawrence is most responsible because he is the one who marries Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo ended up stabbing Tybalt, who instantly fell. By killing Tybalt, not only did the Capulet family detest Romeo further, but also Romeo got banished from Verona. If Romeo had held himself together long enough to leave the fight scene without fighting Tybalt, he could have had a chance to escape with Juliet. Instead, Romeo made the dreadful mistake of fighting Tybalt, which ultimately led to him getting banished. Romeo could have saved his and Juliet’s future, but he was so desperate that he had to kill
Have you ever experienced remorse for a choice that you had made? That could be because you acted quickly and relied on your emotions to guide you, which is just what happened in the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet. Impulsiveness can leave a long lasting, or, in Romeo and Juliet’s case, a permanent consequences. Romeo and Juliet made the ultimate rash decision; they took their own lives out of love for each other. They didn’t really think much about it beforehand.
Who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s Death? In the devastating romance, Romeo and Juliet shows an illustration of how young love is able to cause destruction, not only in their lives but also the people’s lives around them. It also shows how other actor’s thoughts affected the people close to them, but the main question is, who is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet? The death of Romeo and Juliet was not their fault but Friar Lawrence's. Friar is to blame, not only for one action that contributed to their death, but for three actions.
This then leads to Romeo coming back to Juliet. After Romeo gets word that Juliet is dead he rushes back to Juliet. Romeo buys poison, that will kill him, and brings it to Juliet's tomb to die with her. In the play Romeo tells Juliet he loves her than drinks the poison to die with his sweet Juliet. “Here’s to my love!
But the question is, who is most to blame for the death of the two lovers? I believe that Friar Lawrence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet. He easily could have prevented their love from being too strong by not marrying them. If he didn’t act so courageously and think that their marriage would end
Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
Mercutio’s response to his fate, however, is notable in the ways it differs from Romeo’s response. Romeo blames fate, or fortune, for what has happened to him. Him slaying Tybalt was his fate. This then leads to probably the most fatal and important part of Act III… The prince banishing Romeo. Because of this only do Romeo and Juliet die, because Romeo is in another city they can’t communicate properly and the two star-crossed lovers commit suicide.
Juliet only loves Romeo so this drives her to go to Friar Laurence whereupon attempted suicide he prescribes a potion that will make her appear dead. Romeo and Juliet’s decision to be married starts a string of events including Juliet’s “death”, Romeo killing Paris, Romeo killing himself, and Juliet killing
Romeo and Juliet’s decision to kiss and get married leads to the stress of having to hide their marriage from their families. Tybalt’s inflammable personality and Romeo’s passionate urge for revenge leads to the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt. Finally, Romeo and Juliet’s impulsive decisions to kill themselves lead to woe for both the Capulets and the Montagues. This tragedy demonstrates to the audience what could happen if they make quick and impulsive decisions. It teaches them to make careful and well thought out choices, as well as to not make decisions based on emotions.
Juliet’s tragic downfall began when Romeo killed Tybalt, banishing himself to a lifetime of separation from her. Emotionally demolished by his sentence, Romeo says, “ Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say ‘death’”, indicating that Romeo would rather die than be banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment by the Prince then causes Juliet and the Friar to come up with the idea to drink a potion that portrays Juliet to be as still as death. Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison.
This shows how heedless Romeo is and also how affectionate his love is for her. The last unwise decision is made Juliet when she takes a potion to temporarily kill her. As she drinks the potion she feels “a faint cold fear thrills through my [juliet 's] veins” (pg. ) then soon after she meet death. This shows how foolish she is because she takes a lethal potion not completely sure if she would survive
He then felt regret right after he did this, because they are now related through marriage. If Tybalt had not killed Mercutio, Romeo would not have gotten upset with Tybalt. When people found out about Tybalt being killed by Romeo, the Prince banished him from Verona. Since he gets banished it is harder for him to see Juliet, which also made it hard for the news about her being in a deep sleep to reach Romeo. These are my reasons on why Tybalt should also be to blame for the two
Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her. The friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
Instead he chose to abandon the couple. Also, he let this plan take place. “Then comes she to me, and with wild looks bid me devise some mean to rid her from this second marriage, or in my cell there would she kill herself. Then I gave her” (5.3.248-252). He agrees to help Juliet by giving her a potion that makes her appear dead for 42 hours.
